The head of the stockfish which I imagine the Norwegians used to toss in the bin is a particular favourite in many parts of Nigeria most especially the east as it adds an extra flavour that enriches the soup.
However, Lagos as a city is filled with a composite lifestyle of rich versus poor, and clean versus dirty, depending on the side of the divide you encounter. It equally smells, is full of thieves, hawkers and kidnappers, and has a thriving silicon valley.
When I was growing up in Nigeria, my nourishment for how Christmas was celebrated in the West were steady diets of American movies. We considered British movies to be boring and too realistic for comfort and would only watch British comedies.
